A cosmetic freshen up.

4th April 2024

Walking in today, the hills looked fresh and white after a “wee” dusting of fresh snow overnight. This was all fairly cosmetic, and did not change anything in relation to the current snowpack stability… but it looked nice! ¬†with the older snowpack looking fresh and bright.

Overnight tonight and into tomorrow we are expecting a fair amount of fresh snow on strong Easterly winds. This will deposit unstable windslab on wind sheltered South-West to North-West aspects, above 900 metres. Cross-loading of this windslab onto the older snowpack on Northerly aspects is also expected. Please see the main report for more details.
